Brown seeks federal aid for Napa earthquake
September 03, 2014, 05:00 AM The Associated Press

SACRAMENTO — California is turning to the White House in hopes of securing federal aid for the Napa Valley earthquake.

In a letter to President Barack Obama Tuesday, Gov. Jerry Brown asks him to declare a major disaster to release federal emergency funds. The governor also asked Obama to issue an executive order, which would speed up recovery efforts by providing additional aid to local agencies and nonprofits.

Brown declared a state of emergency shortly after the 6.0 magnitude temblor on Aug. 24.

A preliminary assessment says $87 million in earthquake costs could be eligible for federal reimbursement.

Brown said the economic effects of the earthquake will be extensive due to the cost of repairing historic buildings and critical infrastructure and other hidden damages.

The quake struck amid a costly historic drought.
